policy and where they disagree with his foreign policy. that is probably the better play. one of the interesting things here is the point that a lot of folks believe the president gets his nominee but that there were a number of instances where his qualifications, senator hagel's qualifications came into play and it was a very big problem that you have someone who is not even qualified enough to have important and distinct opinions on very big national security policies so that is something that folks up open capitol hill, again, they will use that as a vehicle and that is a smart political play to litigate the differences they have with the administration. >>chris: we have to take a break but when we come back serious movement on immigration reform. reform. will congress pass anything? i you're suffering from constipation, miralax or metamucil may take days to work. for faster relief, try dulcolac laxative tablets. dulcolac provides gentle relief overnight unlike miralax and metamucil that can take up to 3 days. dulcolac provides gentle relief overnight thyou eat less...ing w

/11 obviously certainly on foreign policy became much more conservative. >> he always was. i mean, he was always a sort of new york zionist, supported israel wholeheartedly, you know, sent a delegation to central america in the mid-'80s to chart a course against, you know, sort of the communist rule in nicaragua. that sort of thing in foreign policy terms. but in sort of fiscal terms and in governance terms, he would say, you know, siding with criminals over law-abiding citizens is nuts. saying it's okay to do graffiti on subways is nuts. saying that it's okay for homeless people to sleep on grates on second avenue is nuts. this was all very much the way ordinary people felt, and they felt that democrats and the leadership of the left had turned against ordinary citizens and the good order of their lives. and he stood up against that. >> right. and seemed same and rational unless you were a member of the democratic establishment in the late '70s and '80s when koch was mayor. so it sounds very sane and rational right now in new york city. it didn't at the time. >> it was a much different -- the t

means to president obama's legacy, specifically as we discuss foreign policy and the next four years. >> well, it's going to mean a great deal. after all, two of the accomplishments barack obama is trying to claim is going to be getting us out of war in iraq and out of afghanistan, by 2014 we have to withdraw 66,000 troops from afghanistan. now, the military will deal with that. but john kerry will have to do a lot of diplomacy with pakistan, who are not really sure whether we can trust right now. i think that the key for kerry will be when we move equipment and personnel out of afghanistan through the routes to pakistan, kerry can get done deals out of that country that they live up to. >> of course, americans know him as a multiterm congressman, 30 years in congress in the senate. but what do the rest of the people around the world think of, when they think of john kerry? and what message are they getting, as he embarks on a job that will more than likely see them land in one of their countries? >> well, look, hillary clinton just did 1 million miles, that's a lot of transit for se

and as a solar was able to question foreign policy of the united states publicly? >> i think so. we are familiar with that story. here's a man who was an ivy leaguer, who volunteered for vietnam. he won three purple hearts, a silver star and bronze star. as you say he came back and rejected them. he talked about how immoral the war in vietnam was. that played well around the world. there is still swift boat veterans for truth and groups angry at kerry for that. globally that played pretty well. now kerry who is well known by denouncing vietnam, is in charge of getting us out of afghanistan. so there's an ironic link between the two wars. >> i would be remiss if i didn't use this opportunity while you are on live with me to show a long list of all of the books that you have written, and one of them happens to be the biography of rosa parks. today would be rosa parks 100th birthday. there is a commemorative stamp being released today. it's a significant moment in u.s. history. what are some of the more surprising things, that you learned about rosa parks, in all of your research for the biography?
